I study Biology, Chemistry and History. My main interest is Chemistry but I'd like to do a degree that also combines some biology - however is NOT biology based. This rules out biochemistry because it is mostly biology with some chemistry, however I would like to mostly study chemistry with some biology involved.Does anyone know any degrees that fit this?

Pharmacy? Chemistry for drug discovery? I’m not sure! Maybe use the UCAS degree searcher tool? xx

You could do a chemistry degree and then specialise in something like medicinal chemistry?

Manchester uni has medicinal chemistry, I’m not sure what it’s about but I think it’s got some bio components? Maybe search the course up on the website and how it is

That course looks really good - exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks so much!

I do straight chem and in first year there is a biological chem module and for 2nd/3rd year (depending on ur uni) u can choose modules and focus them on what ur interested in so its really easy to steer ur degree in the direction that you like. Even ppl I know who do medicinal chemistry have identical 1st and 2nd years to just the normal chem students so everyone gets the same inital idea of what degree level chemistry is like. So if you don't mind physical/inorganic chem (which are both v interesting) then chem is a good option as its a v well respected degree. Plus all of our organic lectures are with the biochemists so one full module is shared with them.
